Charlotte Street, Cooktown - A Road that Beckons

It's Sunday and let me take you down Charlotte Street the main street of Cooktown.  I chose Charlotte because it is not only the most interesting street in the town but also it is one of my favourite names.

I love the tropical colonial style architecture that you see in these north Queensland towns.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
